Cascade County Sheriff’s Office launches online jail roster
The Cascade County Sheriff’s Office has launched an online jail roster.
“We are excited to bring this tool to our community,” Sheriff Jesse Slaughter said in a release.

Undersheriff Reeves worked with county and city IT departments to develop the roster.
The roster includes county inmates at the Cascade County Adult Detention Center.
In June, Slaughter told The Electric his department was working to develop the roster that would include booking photos and an automated phone system that would allow the public to call in and get information on people in jail, to include their charges and bond.
“If we want to make a decision as a community to expand pre-trial or the jail, we need information,” Slaughter said in a June interview about the 24/7 sobriety monitoring program, jail overcrowding a pre-trial programs.
